What am I missing in the first part of the request line? The video shows a string of get?firstname=query&query


1 Answer

Hi Ted

These symbols are common in HTTP requests

? indicates the start of a query string

= indicates a key/value pair

& indicates additional key/value pairs allowing you to chain queries together

The solution is

GET /books?type=kindle&sort=popular HTTP/1.1 

Good Luck
